I believe this will give you some insight... a bit of a long read but well worth your time:

The jam you're referring to is the "Tighten Up" jam btw

Many label these jams (e.g. Tighten Up) due to the resemblance to other songs (and some insist on such names) but you don't see them listed on these two DP releases. It's simply Dark Star or Dancing in the Streets. The so-called Mind Left Body Jam came out on Dozin' at the Knick as Mud Love Buddy Jam (http://www.gdforum.com/chats/dl981030.html. Throw any label you want -- or not -- at that Dark Star jam on 6/24/70 but, if I had to pick a favorite, this is it... and, yes, absolutely back it up to #32 before hitting play.
